San Diego Power Tool And Table Saw Injury Lawyers
A construction site cannot function without power tools and table saws, but sometimes, those essential pieces of equipment are responsible for serious accidents. If you are injured on the job, your workers’ compensation benefits may not be enough. If another party other than your employer shares liability for your injury, you may be able to obtain additional financial compensation.
At Martinez & Schill LLP, we help injured workers file third-party claims in construction accident cases. We fight to protect our clients’ rights and make sure our clients are fully compensated for any injuries they sustained on construction sites, including those involving power tools and table saws.
Power Tool Accident Injuries
From drills to chain saws to welding torches, there are dozens of different kinds of power tools in use on any given construction site on any given day. While these tools are typically used safely without incident, they can also cause devastating injuries when they malfunction or are not used properly. Serious injuries that can be caused by power tools include:
- Blunt force trauma
- Puncture wounds
- Deep cuts and gashes
- Broken bones
Such injuries can leave you unable to work for an extended period of time, which can negatively impact your livelihood in a serious way. Workers’ compensation benefits, which you are entitled to under California law, may not be sufficient to cover all your medical expenses and lost wages. If another party other than your employer is also liable for your injuries, a personal injury lawsuit can dramatically increase your level of compensation.
Table Saw Accident Injuries
Cutting wood and other materials on the job site using a table saw is one of the most common construction duties. Table saws are extremely dangerous, however, and the accidental amputation of one or more extremity is not uncommon. Whether an accident is the result of a malfunction, operator negligence or some other cause, there may be a liable party whom you haven’t considered. Our attorneys are skilled in identifying who is to blame for table saw accidents and pursuing compensation from all liable parties.
